7 Oct’16 – Malapportionment & Gerrymandering in Penang Exposed!

malapportionment and gerrymandering

Date: 7 October 2016 (Friday)
Time: 8.00pm – 10.00pm
Venue: Conference Hall I, Penang Institute

Barisan Nasional retained power in the 2013 General Election with 60% of parliamentary seats despite winning only 47% of votes was very much due to the 2003-2005 redelineation exercises. Malaysian politics for the next 10 years may be largely decided by October 14th 2016 if the Election Commission’s new redelieneation proposal goes unchallenged. How badly malapportioned and gerrymandered are parliamentary and state constituencies in Penang? What can we do about it?

Penang Institute’s Political & Social Analysis (PSA) team will share their findings on the malapportionment and gerrymandering with the people of Penang during this talk on Friday, 7th October 2016 at 8.00pm. If you have any question on the redelieneation process, malapportionment and gerrymandering, do come and join us at the Penang Institute to find out more.

Presenters: Dr Wong Chin Huat, Ooi Kok Hin and Nidhal Mujahid.
